Italy with Matteo Berrettini and Jannik Sinner managed to place two players in the quarter-finals of the Australian Open 2022. With an extraordinary test of maturity Sinner manages to break down the resistance of Alex De Minaur and to wait for Stefanos Tsitsipas, winner of the challenge against Taylor Fritz.
Maxime Cressy creates many problems for Daniil Medvedev in the central part of the day. After a set of total relaxation, the Russian suffers the constant pressure of the American and pays a rather soft second serve in the heart of the tie break in the third set.
The Russian still manages to harpoon the break at 5-5 in the fourth and grabs the forty-ninth career Slam success. The second quarter-final on the blue of Melbourne Park will be played against Felix Auger Aliassime, executioner of Marin Cilic.
Alize Cornet has sensationally defeated Simona Halep and for the first time in her career passes the cut of the round of 16 in a Grand Slam tournament. Nothing to do for the number sixteen of the group, who only recovered in half a set and a break behind.
Cornet checks, who finds the energy necessary enough to give the break in the deciding set and to fix the sweetest success of her in her career at 6-4 4-6 6-4. In the quarterfinals the challenge with Danielle Collins, who survives the marathon in the early part of the day against Elise Mertens.
Finished surprises? Not at all. Also skips the number two of the big group, Aryna Sabalenka, beaten in the final part of the day by the Estonian Kaia Kanepi. She will challenge Iga Swiatek, winner against Sorana Cirstea.
Australian Open 2022: Nadal and Barty in the quarters!
Rafael Nadal's problems against Adrian Mannarino last a set at the Australian Open 2022 4th round. After a thirty-point tie break (and in which he is saved even on four occasions) the Spanish champion spreads between the second and third without making any particular changes to the script.
The French tennis player, evidently tried by the marathon with Aslan Karatsev in the third round, moves the score only on three occasions. Nadal then reaches the quarter-finals on the blue Melbourne Park for the fourteenth time in his career (better only Roger Federer) and makes forty-five in the Slams.
Alexander Zverev, beaten by Denis Shapovalov in three sets in the 4th round of the Australian Open 2022, once again misses the chance to move forward in the portion of the board left vacant by the world number one. Wins also for Matteo Berrettini and Gael Monfils.
Ashleigh Barty won in straight sets against Amanda Anisimova. Wins also for Barbora Krejcikova, Jessica Pegula and Madis Keys.
